3M sues former law firm for its role in a lawsuit against the company

Covington & Burling is advising Minnesota’s attorney general in a water pollution lawsuit against the tech giant

In late 2010, Covington & Burling dropped 3M Co. as a client. Eight days later, the law firm started work for Minnesota’s attorney general, who then filed an environmental lawsuit against none other than 3M.
